Just thought I’d add to your list,

My Vitriol – From the book Brighton Rock by Graham Greene. Vitriol is what they used to call Hydrochloric Acid – The character Pinkie in the book always carried a bottle with him to pour in the faces of anyone who might attack him (It’s a book set in the 40’s about underground British gangsters)

The Pixies – Black Francis allegedly randomly opened the dictionary and that was the first thing he saw, so they called their band that.
